On October 12, 1982 the Venezuelan Institute for Culture and Cooperation in Grenada was inaugurated
at that moment, the Institute had a language laboratory, dance classes were also taught, as well as exchanges of students between both countries.
The Venezuelan Institute for culture and cooperation is a center of the Ministry of Peoples Power for Foreign Relations of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and it was created to project the cultural image of Venezuela in the Caribbean and Central America.
The work developed by the IVCC, not only in Grenada, but the rest of the Caribbean has been recognized by the countries and communities in the region where it operates.
The realization of various activities, such as exchange of traditional groups, choirs, courses of musical instruments and Venezuelan crafts have made it possible to promote the Venezuelan culture in the Caribbean area.
The IVCC has managed to prepare thousands of citizens of the Caribbean and of other nationalities, in the learning of Spanish, which has enabled them to increase their cultural heritage.
